Inspiration for a cottage white two-story wood exterior home remodel in New York

FarmhouseFarmhouse Exterior, New York

The restoration of this 200 year old home was inspired by a Greek revival style, characteristic of early American architecture. A local housewright and historian worked together with Daniel Contelmo during the restoration in order to preserve the home's antiquity. Most of the foundation remains the original fieldstone, and the exposed hand-hewn beams were carefully removed, restored, and replaced. Traditional Pine Plains windows and a wrap-around porch display the pastoral 10 acre site, complete with lake and Catskill mountain views. Although the interior of the house was completely renovated, a New-Old house technique was used by distressing 20 inch-wide floorboards, installing two Rumford fireplaces, and using milk paint on cabinetry. Prior to renovating the home a magnificent timberframe barn was erected in the location where an original 1800s barn had burned down 100 years previously.

    The original house had similar windows at the floor line. When we rebuilt this home, we raised the second floor walls to five feet tall and raised the windows with them. They are functional and are awning type windows. Any manufacturer will make these.
